Primary Care Specialists Services At Primary Care Specialists, we pride ourselves in providing high quality patient care services. We are strictly outpatient services oriented. If hospital care is needed, we work closely with hospitalists at Sentara Norfolk General Hospital, Sentara Leigh Hospital, Bon Secours DePaul Hospital and Chesapeake Regional Medical Center.
Acute, Chronic and Preventative Care We offer general medical care, complete physicals, women wellness exams, sports physicals and school physicals. We have a special interest in caring for diabetes, hypertension and hypercholesterolemia. We perform and set up preventative health maintenance testing such as pap smears, prostate exams, mammograms, colonoscopies, etc.
Same Day Service Available For urgent matters that cannot wait for an appointment, we offer specific walk-in hours with our nurse practitioner who will take care of your immediate needs and consult with the doctor if needed.
Healthy Living Center Come join us at our Healty Living Center for an in depth but simplified presentation in diabetes education developed and conducted by our certified diabetic educator and nurse practitioner Olivia Newby. The center offers shared diabetes education in a group setting. Learn how to live with and control your diabetes from certified diabetic educators, nurse practitioners and doctors. Healthy food sampling by area chefs, free glucose testing monitors with one-on-one teaching, and power point presentations with ample time for questions and answers, are just a few of the activities that are offered during a session in the Healthy Living Center. When in season, we will demonstrate how to use spices and herbs from our own on-site garden to prepare nutritional foods.
The Healthy Living Center also has a weight loss program, diet information, health educational handouts and other health related programs.
